    The food is okay in the cafe. There is a lot of variety. There is fried chicken Wednesday and fish Friday every week. From time to time they have chicken sandwiches and chicken nuggets which is the best two foods the serve and you can tell because they will be gone quick. Your other choice on campus is the grille under the cafeteria. This food is better but you may have to wait a little bit for it if the grille is busy. Students can also get chick-fil-a sandwich in the sbe if they can not make it to the student center that day.

    The food is very good. There is a wide variety of food and drinks served here at FSU. With the entertaining and buffet style décor and atmosphere, you will find yourself coming to the café everyday all day.

    Its basically high school cafeteria food with a small upgrade. You will be eating cereal for dinner some nights in the caf. The grille that is downstairs has the same options every day it will get old after a while. The caf and the grille are basically the only food options on campus. Across the street is a chinese place and something new that just got put there. Unfortunately the wing place closed and left. You will be hungry some days unless you have groceries/transportation.

    I eat during breakfast and lunch and they serve the same food everyday. Some days they change it up. On Wednesdays, they have fried chicken and it's pretty good. Everyone comes in during that day. They could add more variety to their menu. Again I am only describing breakfast and lunch.

    Although Fayetteville State University is a historically black university, It is very diverse in every aspect, including the food. The dining hall staff is very welcoming and the food is delicious. By using your meal plan, you basically have access to a buffett at your conveinence.

    Greek life is great. Everyone knows the greeks and they all have their own cool personalities. You will always see them doing their dances when their song comes on. When a Greek organization has a week they host all types of events.

    There's are some Greek frats and sororities. They advise people not to ask for membership as they come to you. My opinion is not join any if you really want to.
